LOL That has to be one of the funniest bits of sophistry I've read in a very long time. Thanks for the laugh. I appreciated it.

You don't know who Schwendler was. You don't know if he was murdered or not. You don't even know if he's dead or alive. Yet it's your contention that an unsubstantiated and possibly inaccurate claim remain in the archives because the "opinion... expressed is now historical fact, and it is part of this debate."

Basically, what you're saying is that I can upload historical files, say anything I want in the description and my words have to remain because my opinion is now a part of history.

I really don't think an historical item's description is the place for color commentary or OpEds. THAT is re-writing history. I strongly believe that opinions and commentary should be reserved for the forums and the item review sections - particularly for the sake of historical accuracy.

Hopefully, we can peacefully agree to disagree.
